by MakingTheGrade » Jan 2, 2019 So the saga has finally concluded! This diamond was found by @Niel, fostered by @pearaffair, and has finally found it's forever home with me! The diamond is a 2.22ct Fancy Light Brownish Yellow Marquise that was originally in a engagement style white gold setting, but was dying to be reset into a richer yellow gold to really celebrate the color. A very big thank you to all the pricescopers who helped me to collect photos of inspiration pictures to help me realize what I wanted and what to show my jeweler. At the wise suggestion of @Niel, I didn't do a bezel, but instead did a colette which I (if I understood correctly) is an old Georgian jewelry style. It gives the look and most of the protection of a bezel without covering the girdle and darkening the stone. I sent a BUNCH of pictures to my jeweler. And asked that the ring be hand cast/made to be true to the antique roots. I wanted it to look hand made and didn't want it to look too modern or too clean/perfect. So no CADs, just faith in my jeweler to make it happen. It turned out GREAT. It's not to everyone's taste I'm sure, but I adore the antique look of it. It is a hefty, commanding ring. Something I imagine someone from Game of Thrones would wear The reset has really amped up the color! Here is the thread with all the various inspiration photos https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/bezelling-a-marquise.244555/ Here are some pictures of the old setting: Edit: The original ring was named Hazel. I was going to rename her Beau but now that I see her it doesn’t quite fit and I already have another piece of jewelry made to commemorate my fluff ball. So open to suggestions for names! Definitely needs to be something that would fit in in something like Lord of the Rings lol. And now here comes my onslaught of new pictures!
